"We played with a lot of energy to get a great win," explained Yabusele after the second game against Joventut.

Real Madrid coach Chus Mateo and Yabusele, who played his best game in our jersey (37 points), analysed the win over Joventut. The coach talked about the second game played at the WiZink Center: "We had more intensity and this injection of energy in the second half was good for us to realise the competitive rhythm that we didn't have in the first game. We have to keep it up and try to make a big effort".
"It's a very tough season, with a lot of game-time for a lot of people, and we are low on energy, but we are close to the end of the season and we have to make an effort to get into the final. Joventut is playing very well, they know each other perfectly and we have to respect them because we want to get to the final. They are going to make it very tough for us."
Yabusele: "I always try to help the team."
"It was a great victory with a great atmosphere and we'd like to dedicate it to the fans. We reacted in the second half and now we're one to one in the play-offs. We were mentally prepared from the start and we played with a lot of energy because we couldn't go to Badalona trailing 2-0."
"I always try to help the team and I'm happy with the win. I tried to score, pass the ball and rebound aggressively. Now, we have to keep working and get ready for the third game."
